Arrow decent aussie bands.

what aussie bands are decent other than the main big ones?

eg, silverchair, living end, powderfinger, wolfmother.

ones that are still together, and still touring, or at least gigging.

Vanishing Point. they play melodic metal, kinda reminded me of Firewind, and they supported Iron Maiden in Melbourne. also Frankenbok for heavier metal, but they're kind of underground and not for everyone.

Oooo shnap. There was a really good death metal band my old music teacher's brother was in. Just look up "List of brutal death metal bands" on wiki and itll be one of the only Aussie ones.

I believe Pendulum are from Australia, I may be mistaken though.
